A Big Thrill

We were driving down the mountain on Friday and I looked to my left and there sat a Bald Eagle! He/she was sitting on the very tip top of a blue spruce tree. I tried to get some photos but was too busy freaking out. Hayley snapped a couple of shots and I zoomed in on them so you can see how beautiful he was. When we were driving out Saturday morning we saw two more flying around. I am a bird watcher and have never seen a Bald Eagle in the wild. I think this was the highlight of the trip.

She got this photo just as he was flying off the tree. His head is down - you can see his beautiful yellow beak if you look closely.
